The First Angry Man

Price: $ 2.00

Genre: Science Fiction, short story

Purchase: http://www.damnationbooks.com/book.php?isbn=9781615720675

Publisher: Damnation Books

What I liked: A very interesting and great short story tale of science fiction portions. King describes the future with the question of what would happen to the intelligent creations that the human race creates? The tale follows a man/creation dealing with his past, but will he come to terms? King can certainly describe the future well with a ton of technological advances, but gets into the raw emotions of his human characters. A story although short not to miss.


Book Blurb:

What will be the legal status of our intelligent creations? Will we treat them as equals, or will they remain forever enslaved?



Excerpt:

The store had no “travel kits” in its inventory, so she could not suspend his cognitive functions during the trip to Kate’s. He would have to travel fully conscious, disembodied and “in the dark”: the most terrifying experience a sentient could face. When she told him, he whimpered. “Oh no, Claire. I can’t do that. My God, I just can’t.”
